Heat Vs. Nets Recap: Miami Rides LeBron James For 4th Quarter Comeback Win

It was certainly harder than it should have been, but the Miami Heat pulled off their second win in as many days on Monday with a 101-98 victory over the New Jersey Nets. The Heat went on a furious fourth quarter run to eek out the three-point win after trailing for much of the second half. Miami outscored Jersey 31-19 over the final 12 minutes to escape with the road win.

LeBron James went off for the Heat, scoring 37 points and hitting 14 of 15 attempts from the charity stripe. With Erik Spoelstra resting Dwyane Wade again, James carried the club throughout and was huge down the stretch. Chris Bosh added an impressive double-double effort, grabbing 15 rebounds and scoring 22 points. They were the only two Miami players in double figures, but New Jersey had no answers and the two-man game was enough to clinch the late win.

After being out on the road most of the week, the Heat now return home for a tilt with the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.
